The campus at S.U. is not }ust an anal- 
ogous group of edifices. These buildings 

I have character. The oldest, such as the 
Cullen building, gives one a sense of 
rooted establishment and sentimental- 
ity. The newest additions, Mabee Hall

The faculty members participate in 
college life as much as the students. The 
faculty/student ratio has always been 
good at S.U. so that faculty members 
never have to spread themselves too 
thin. From this, healthy relationships be- 
tween students and faculty members 


Whether it was the historical home- 
coming or the first annual Christmas 
Ball, both types of events filled the 1987 



No, S.U. does not have football. It nev- 
er has and it probably never will. But it 
does have some devoted athletes play- 
ing volleybafl, basketball, baseball, ten- 
nis, golf, and lacrosse. 


One of the oldest clubs at S.U. is the 
Mask and Wig Players. Since the 
school's establishment, many other or- 
ganizations have survived throughout 
the years. Also, many new clubs have 
evolved in order to meet the needs of 
the students and keep up with the times.

Good Studying 

(Five medically) sound health/study

1. Never study with music or TV. Radi- 
ation emitted from TV screens and stereo 
speakers causes severe swelling and irri- 
tation of the eyelids. 

2. Don't study in bed. Dangerously high 
sheet to book ratios have been known to 
cause Rocky Mountain spotted fever in 
laboratory rats.

3. Don't cram for tests-read assigned work when it's assigned. Cramming 
for tests only leads to painfully knitted brows and lockjaw! 

4. Don't eat while you study. Research has shown that simultaneous 
operation of the digestive system and the intellect may lead to painful cuts 
and abrasions on the palms of your hands and soles of your feet. 

5. Assemble a study group of your classmates. Studying in large numbers 
significantly reduces risk of stretch marks and age spots in the facial region. 

Keep studying- and keep fit! by Syd Gary and Beth Chapoton

S.U. Style 

"Southwest? Isn't that a party 

"No, sir. You're thinking about 
Southwest Texas in San Marcos. This is 
Southwestern, in Georgetown. But we 
do have parties." 

Whether school, independent, or 
Greek sponsored, the calendar is filled 
with them. Clever themes add life to 
these festive affairs making "get - to - 
gethers" turn into extravaganzas.

Although classes aren't out until 
five, students begin packing their 
bags and loading their cars for Spring 
Break around noon. This break has 
the potential to be the wildest, most 
thrilling vacation time for students. 
All of the elements are there: fun, 
sun, the hint of summer, and 
freedom from school for a whole 
week. Someone once told me, 
"Spring Break is great. There are no 
pressures to be with family or to do 
anything "hokey" except maybe to 
get a job." Many students do head 
home for these leisure days and 
promise mom they'll be employed 
this summer. 

Others save spare change, and 
with some ingenuity, have the time 
of their lives at a hot vacation spot. 
Spring Break transforms pale, 
bookworm, body-concious students 
into bronze beauties, well fed and 
rested Momma's darlings, brave 
campers, or even easyriders. 

Rolling Right 

. V 

Students at Southwestern have always enjoyed the countryside surrounding 
the University that begins at the rock and extends to . . . well, wherever. Rolling 
is the concept of enriching the students' lives through closer glimpses of this 
milieu. These "glimpses" are effectively captured through the rolling process 
which involves a car, more than one occupant, and a beverage of any kind. 

Through years of experienced rolling, students have acquired favored spots 
that are a "must" for breaking in new rollers. These hot spots include The 
Walburg Angel, Bitch Bridge, the Cotton Gin, Heaven and Hell, Pecan Grove, 
Snuffy's, Possums, and assorted drinking holes. The l-House was fast developing 
into a hot spot until its destruction on February 19; however, its memory will 
live on in imfamy. 

These exclusive sights generally have their own legends incorporated in their 
fame. These legends are told during late-night rolls and effectively inspire fear 
and awe, two elements that always add excitement to rolling, by Katie Parvin

12 Campus 


Southwestern University's campus has 
been called one of Texas' most beautiful 
and best planned college facilities. Locat- 
ed in residential area on the eastern edge 
of the city, the 32 buildings situated on 
500 acres supply an unusually fine envi- 
ronment for living and learning. 

The Administration Building, completed 
in 1900, was renovated through grants 
made by the Cullen Foundation. It was 
renamed the Roy and Lillie Cullen Building 
in 1977. The Cullen Building underwent 
further renovation this year, receiving a 
new roof and the building's interior was

A. Mood, first regent of the University, 
was renovated and restored with grants 
from the J.S. Bridwell Foundation of Wich- 
ita Falls, and the J.E. and L.E. Mabee 
Foundation, Inc. of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The

fices and classrooms. 




• In the center of the campus stands the 
Bishops Memorial Union, built in 1958, a 
popular campus meeting place housing 
student and faculty lounges, a snack bar, 
bookstore, game rooms, student offices, 
the Union Theatre conference rooms, 
publications offices, and the campus post 
office. It is named for the six United Meth- 
odist bishops who were either alumni or 
staff of Southwestern. 




Cody Memorial Library, one of the fin- 
est college libraries in the area, contains 
more than 150,000 catalogued volumes 
and subscribes to some 500 periodicals 
and newspapers. Construction was begun 
in the fall of 1986 that will enable the 
library to double its holdings and will add 
more space for studying. The structure is 
a blend of classic and modern architec- 
ture. The original library was constructed 
in 1939, and a new building was added on 
in 1966.

A Traditional Weekend 

The first Homecoming festivities at 
Southwestern were held April 21, 1909. A 
contemporary historian described the oc- 
casion as the "biggest event in Southwes- 
tern's history." 

The town closed its business doors, 
decked itself in black and gold, and wel- 
comed 1,500 ex-students, some of whom 
had not been on campus for over a quar- 
ter of a century ... At noon a barbecue 
dinner was held on the campus - it was 
nearly rained out - and the tables were 
filled three times. 

Although Homecoming at S.U. hasn't 
always meant barbecue for 1,500, tradi- 
tionally, it has been a time of celebration 
and a chance for collegiates to interact 
with alumni. With no football game to pro- 
vide the central focus, S.U. has, over the 
years, come up with its own itinerary of 
Homecoming traditions. Most of these 
have been designed with students in 

University Sing was Friday. There were 
nine official entries and six filler acts this 
year. Saturday's activities kept everyone 
happily entertained with a parade around 
the campus circular drive, a barbecue 
lunch on the lawn between the SUB and 
Chapel, and a performance of the top 
singing winners of Sing for the Alumni As- 
sociation's Award Ceremony. "Old-tim- 
ers" baseball and basketball games fol- 
lowed this. 

The event for Saturday night was the 
Homecoming Dance, and the place was 
the Country Palace in Round Rock. The 
weekend ended on Sunday with the tradi- 
tional worship service, which held special 
significance for all involved in the South- 
western community, by Teresa Deal.

Sing has remained a Southwestern Uni- 
versity tradition which everyone looks 
forward to. This year's show was a great 
success. All four sororities and fraterni- 
ties entered the competition along with 
numerous individual acts. 

There were some inspiring skits which 
resembled Broadway productions. The 
Zetas grabbed everyone's attention with 
their elaborate version of Cats. Everyone 
took a trip back to the big band era with 
the Delta Zeta's all out presentation of 
songs such as "Rum and Coca Cola" and 
"Apple Blossum Time." The Pikes kept up 
a tradition of their own by winning first 
place yet another year with their produc- 
tion of songs of the old south. 

A few entries reflected on campus life. 
First, the Campus Life Staff shared a be- 
hind the scenes look at the Maintenence 
Crew. Their humorous versions of the 
words to the songs from The Sound of 
Music won third place. The Tri Delts' 
"DDD T.V." opened Sing with an overview 
of Southwestern life by rewriting words to 
sitcom themes. In the end they left the 
audience with "Such a Good Feeling" in 
the true Mr. Roger's spirit. "The Best Lit- 
tle Frat House in Texas" presented by the 
Kappa Alphas exposed all, even though 
they did contend that "There ain't 
Nothin' Dirty Goin' On." The final glimpse 
of campus life came when the Alpha Delta 
Pi's split up into the roles of boys and girls 
to portray the complexity of Southwes- 
tern's "Dating Game." Everyone enjoyed 
their clever insight. 

In celebration of their centennial, the 
Sigs kept to their own tradition of singing 
songs around a campfire (actually a can- 
dle). No need to worry, a fire extinguisher 
was close at hand. 

Finally the Phi Delts were out to enter- 
tain with classic party songs such as 
"Twist -n- Shout" and "Louie, Louie" To 
the audience's amusement they were 
dressed appropriately in their togas and 
boxer shorts. 

Sing was a hit. The alumni and students 
really got into the spirit of fun thanks to 
the sororities and fraternities, great indi- 
vidual acts, and witty M.C.'s. by Tonia

Campoigning For The Ticker 

Campaigning for the Republican party 
ticket, United States Senator Phil 
Gramm made a campaign whistlestop at 
Southwestern University on October 
27th. The impetus for the visit by 
Gramm, which was sponsored by the 
University Republicans and the South- 

western Committee to elect Bill Cle- 
ments, was a very successful voter reg- 
istration drive netting over 250 new reg- 
istrations on campus. The well-known 
Junior Senator spoke to more than 125 
students, faculty, and Georgetownites.

The St. Edwards mixer proved to be a 
great social merger for many students. 
SU's Union Program Council negotiated 
with the Student Activities Council at St. 
Edwards University. Austin and brought 
the two schools together Ben Sherman 
was behind the SU scene of the Boxer 

The Jam took place at St. Ed's in hon- 
or of their newly renovated gym. Every- 
one danced the night away, the dance 

featured the newly up and coming band 
Caruso. Amidst all the singing and danc- 
ing, students from both schools got a 
chance to mix. For those who had more 
than meeting on their mind the planners 
arranged a computer scamming game. 
Couples were matched by the computer 
according to their expressed interest in 
the one another. Even those not partici- 
pating in the game had fun watching the 
results and meeting new people.

A Nighr ro Remember 

Saturday, December 6, 1986 set a 
new tradition for Southwestern Universi- 
ty with the Christmas Ball. This event 
was unique because it did not only cater 
to the students, it included the entire 
university community of staff, faculty, 
administration and students. The Union 
Program Council's Recreational Com- 
mittee planned this extravaganza. Mem- 
bers of the committee included: Tracy 
Harting, Trisha Rickey, Jill Brown, Patty 
McClure, Bridget Collins, Laura Kimball, 
Rebecca Lincoln, Laurel Hoel, Debbie 
Volker, Laura Byrd, Sharon Graham, and 
Kristy Sorenson. Tracy Harting, the 
committee chairperson exclaimed, "I 
think it's great to invite everyone, it's 
the first time that the entire school com- 
munity has been invited to such a party. 
It will be good to see all of the groups

mingling and having fun." 

Besides mixing and mingling, the 
guests were able to dine and dance the 
night away. Bob Stage and staff pre- 
pared succulent delights. The menu of- 
fered the guests their choices of turkey 
breast, baked ham, minature eggrolls 
with the appropriate sauces, home 
made rolls, chicken drummettes, and 
cheeseballs covered with almonds. For 
dessert, Christmas cookies dipped in 
chocolate were served. Punches were 
submitted by the sororities and the best 
punch received a prize. The Zetas won. 
Guests had the opportunity to work off 
the calories on the dance floor by swing- 
ing to the rhythms of Clifford Zirkel's big 
band sound. Dance lessons were given 
by Dr. Kain to show people how to "real- 
ly dance." 

For some additional fun, three 
Georgetown police officers were deckec 
out in Santa Claus outfits. A huge Christ 
mas tree and white lights sparkled over 
head to add to the festive atmosphere 
Door prizes heightened the giving spiri 
of the season. Besides 4 $50 gift certifi 
cates from Heritage Men's Shop and La 
keaire cleaners, a calculator, free VCF 
and movie rental, and gift certificate? 
from various restaurants and retailer; 
were given away. Trisha Rickey conclud 
ed, "I think it will give everyone the op 
portunity to celebrate Christmas witr 
the people who they see, live, and woH 
with every day." Perhaps this gala even 
will set a new tradition at S.U. 



fhe Age of Computers 

Southwestern University's Interna- 
tional Brown Symposium on computers, 
was held March 25-27, to demonstrate 
how dramatically computers have 
changed our everyday thinking in a 
short amount of time. Dr. Naomi Baron 
coordinated the symposium. 

"Because computers are common- 
place, we are no longer wondering 
^whether to use a computer but which 
one to use," she explained. In many cir- 
cumstances we have little choice but to 
use a computer; in fact, because of the 
general, rapid growth of technology, 
computers and computing impinge on 
our lives in ways that we don't even 
think about anymore, she said. 

The symposium was entitled "Pando- 

ra's Box. Computers in Everyday Life." 
According to Baron, computers offer a 
"Pandora's Box" of possibilities: Though 
many people are apprehensive of them, 
computers have the potential to affect 
each of our lives profoundly. 

Baron recruited a host of internation- 
ally-known computer experts to speak 
at the symposium, including Alan Kay, 
who has been called the "father of the 
personal computer"; Joseph Deken, au- 
thor of the best-selling book The Elec- 
tronic Cottage; sound Synthesis expert 
John Chowning of Stanford University; 
science fiction author Issac Asimov; and 
other experts in areas such as robotics, 
Fractals, expert systems and biome- 

"Many states have passed computer 
literacy requirements, some for stu- 
dents, others for schoolteachers. Many 
of the landmarks in the computer indus- 
try have been established only recently- 
the first Apple computer was introduced 
in 1979, the first IBM Personal Comput- 
er in 1981, the first Apple Macintosh in 
1984- and the world of computing has 
changed dramatically since then," said 

"The Brown Symposium demonstrat- 
ed how much change has come into our 
everyday thinking in a short amount of 
times because of computers," states 
Naomi Baron. 


A Gambling Extravaganza 

The grand-finale of Southwestern's Al- 
cohol Awareness Week happened Satur- 
day night from 8:00 PM to midnight in the 
Union under the auspices of Casino Night. 
According to Don Heins, the program's 
director, Casino Night was designed as a 
demonstration of fun without drinking. 

The events planned proved to make a 
gala affair with representatives from all 
sectors of the campus community on the 
invitation list. Along with blackjack tables 
and faculty card tricksters, participants 
found a wide range of vice producing 
games. Such games ranged from three 
crap tables and two roulette wheels all 
equipped with "professional" dealers, six- 
teen blackjack tables and a Wheel of for- 

Everything was set up to look like and 
convey the ambiance of a real gambling 
hall including bank windows where folks 
cashed in many chips for cash vouchers 
made, some say, on Kirk Treible's home- 
made press. 

Upon arrival each student received 
$10,000 worth of chips and was let loose. 
With their winnings at the end of the night 
they could bid for fantastic prizes during 
the auction, by Kenny Simon

"Hail. Alma Marer" 

One hundred and sixty seniors graduat- 
ed from Southwestern University in the 
month of May, 1987. The ceremony fo- 
cused on the importance of the human- 
ities. The program employed a A Defini- 
tion Of the Humanities by Ralph Perry to 
explain and define this concept. The pro- 
gram proceeded in the traditional way 
with the response from the candidates, 
the statement by the President, the con- 
ferring of degrees, the greeting from the 
Alumni Association, and the Alma Mater. 
Following this, was the benediction and

Outstanding graduates were recog- 
nized from each department. The current 
cumulative grade point averages for hon- 
ors were established in 1983. The re-

Roy Shilling's Got What It Takes 

Roy B. Shilling, Jr., president of 
Southwestern University in Georgetown, 
is among the 100 most effective college 
and university leaders in the nation, ac- 
cording to a two-year study recently 
completed at Bowling Green State Uni- 
versity in Ohio. 

The study, entitled The Effective Col- 
lege President, examined the personal 
characteristics, professional back- 
ground and attitudinal differences that 
personify the men and women who have 
been identified by their peers as the na- 
tion's most effective college presidents. 

Questionnaires were sent in 1984 to 
485 presidents, scholars and leaders of 
foundations and associations. The ques- 
tionnaire asked people to name the five 

most effective college presidents in the 
nation, and resulted in 412 names. The 
list was narrowed to 100 by selecting 
people who were nominated the most 
often, as well as through interviews with 
18 higher education leaders across the 

Dr. Shilling has been president of 
Southwestern, a private university with 
1,100 students, since 1981. During that 
time the endowment has grown from 
$26 million to more than $87 million, 
putting Southwestern among the top 
thirty in the nation in terms of endow- 
ment per student. Southwestern also 
has increased faculty salaries to among 
the highest in the nation for institutions 
of its kind, and has emphasized recruit- 

ing students who are highly talented 

Dr. Shilling, who has been called on 
frequently as a national spokesman on 
higher education administration and val- 
ues-centered education in the liberal 
arts, is serving a four-year term as presi- 
dent of the University Senate of The 
United Methodist Church, the accredit- 
ing body for more than 120 United 
Methodist church related universities 
across the country. Southwestern has 
maintained strong ties with the United 
Methodist Church during its 146 year 
history. A courtesy of the Megaphone.

Slam Dunk to Dominate 

Southwestern University Men's Bas- 
ketball team finished their season with a 
22-1 1 record, winning more games than 
last year's quarter finalist team. The 
1986-87 team failed to advance past the 
St. Mary's Rattlers in the NAIA District IV 
championship, losing 47-53. 

This year's young team did without 
experienced point-guard Wally Myers, 
All-American Bobby Deaton, and the off- 
the-glass rebounder Troy Bijou. Instead, 
Coach Paul Peak casted a new starting 
line-up of young faces and old hands. 

Senior point-guard Greg Potter, five 
foot nine inches, gave up his hectic ten- 
dencies of the past to help the team with 
sound ball-handling, solid defense, and 
impressive offensive stats. Pete Fink 
guarded with Potter to provide an ex- 
tremely stable dribbling department of 
the Buc's game. 

Freshman Ray Baranco, and honor- 

able mention in the NAIA All-American 
poll and All District player, provided ex- 
plosively powerful offense from his small 
forward-big guard position through all 
33 games, averaging 21.5 points per 

Veteran senior forward Bruce Lewis 
remained a mainstay in the Pirate's de- 
fensive effort and often spurred and set 
the tone of offensive play. 

Senior rough-houser Jim Rathburn, 
Southwestern's center and captain 
posed a serious threat to the offensive 
drives of opposing teams and contribut- 
ed passing skills and clutch shooting to 
the offensive effort for the Bucs. Rath- 
burn averaged 10.3 rebounds per games 
which statistically made him the second 
best in District 4. 

Other players from the bench pro- 
vided Southwestern's team with sound 
depth and a promising future. Freshman 

small forward Tim Hickman and cente 
Gerald Embry increasingly helped th< 
team throughout the year, adding con 
sistent and energized assistance ir 
many games. Motivational leader: 
Keane Fedosky and Jeff Knebel alsc 
filled in throughout the year, solidly de 
fining a complete team. Coach Peak': 
son, David, was sidelined for most of th< 
season with knee problems. 

Peak set the national playoffs in Kan 
sas City as the Team's goal for next sea 
son. Fink, Baranco, and Peak are ex 
pected to play guard positions. Injure< 
big - man Steve Henderson should re 
turn to add some offensive muscle t< 
the Bucs game, helping Tim Hickman ii 
the forward positions. Sophomon 
Embry, at six foot six inches, is sched 
uled to play center, by Joey Gimenez

Bucs Hit to Win 

The SU Baseball Team finished their 
1987 season with a 48-22 record. 
Ranked in the NAIA Top 10 until their 
final week of play, the Bucs had their 
season of "Buc-Ball" cut short by the St. 
Mary's Rattlers in the District Four Fin- 

Some outstanding offensive players 
for the Bucs in 1987 were designated 
hitter Danny Cohen, who hit .444 with 
20 homeruns and 91 RBI's; outfielder 
Don Shelton, who batted .398 with 92 
hits and 35 stolen bases; and a outfield- 
er Derek Kempf, a .372 swatter with 12 
HR's and 67 RBI's. The defensively 

strong rocket arm of catcher Lauren 
Hudson helped the Bucs quiet opposing 
players on the basepaths while he hit 
.329. Two outstanding freshman pitch- 
ers, Ben Austin (6-1) and Don Childs (6- 
2), helped the seasoned veteran Mike 
Timlin (7-6) off the hill. 

Mike Timlin was drafted in the third 
round by the Toronto Blue Jays as a 
3.28 ERA turned the heads of Pro- 
scouts. Danny Cohen was looked at by 
the Cincinatti Reds and Atlanta Braves. 
Seniors Tommy Collins, Lauren Hudson, 
and Jeff Allen have also left the team but 
Coach Mallon predicted another suc- 

cessful season in 1988. 

Rounding out the season at the othe 
positions were Jeff Giusti at first, Ja 
LaGrone at second, Pat Myers at shor 
stop, and Tom Collins at third base 
Todd Fagg and Mike Patronello helpe 
Kempf and Shelton in the outfield. Jir 
Phillips backed up Hudson in the catch 
ing position. Pat Leonard, Andy Laudr^ 
James Mills, and Ed Sanchez assisted i 
the infield. Pitchers Mike Cavers, Mik 
Anderson, Brad Braker, Eddie Bazar 
Greg Smith, and Todd Marshall aidej 
the pitching staff, by Joey Gimenez

Volley For Victory 

Coach Glada Munt had high hopes for 
the upcoming season as 5 starters were 
returning from last year's team, but the 
Bucs fell just shy of their goal - a national 
championship. The team started out 
well and moved into October ranked 8th 
in the NAIA poll. The Bucs gained mo- 
mentum into the second half of the sea- 
son when they took first place in the 
Missouri Western Invitational Tourna- 

The Bucs beat NAIA-5th ranked Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, NAIA- 
2nd ranked Arkansas-Little Rock, and 
handed the host team NCAA Division II- 
4th ranked Central Missouri State their 
first loss. After this spectacular showing, 
the Bucs were ranked in the top 5 of the 

NAIA poll throughout the rest of the sea- 
son. The Bucs beat Texas Lutheran Col- 
lege for the NAIA IV title (15-11, 13-15, 
15-12, 15-11) and then travelled to Ft. 
Worth and beat Texas Wesleyan College, 
the NAIA District VIM champions, in 5 
games (16-14, 9-15, 18-16, 5-15, 15-11) 
to take the BiDistrict Championship. The 
next stop for the Bucs was the NAIA Na- 
tional Tournament, which was hosted by 
Texas Wesleyan College in Ft. Worth. 
The Bucs were seeded second going into 
the tournament, but they ran into noth- 
ing but bad luck and bad bounces. The 
Bucs fell to Brigham Young University- 
Hawaii, Graceland College-Iowa, and 
Mesa College-Colorado. 
They ended their season 31-13. Tela 

Lindsey (34% kill efficiency, 5.3 kills per 
game, 92% serving percentage, and 
85% passing percentage) was named to 
the NAIA All-American Second Team. 
Both Tela and Kathy were voted to the 
NAIA District IV First Team and junior 
Kristy Horton was voted to the NAIA Dis- 
trict IV Second Team. 

The Bucs will be losing 3 seniors this 
year: Tela Lindsey, Kathy Chapman, and 
Ann Hargrove, an excellent middle 
blocker who has won various all-tourna- 
ment awards throughout her career. 
Overall, the Bucs had a very ccessful 
season and provided their fans with 
many memorable moment, by Teri Par-

Victorious Over Arch Rivals 

The Southwestern Lacrosse team 
ended the 1987 season with a 5-8 re- 
cord. While the team didn't quite make a 
.500 season, it was a winning year in 
many ways. 

For the first time in the history of the 
team, Southwestern brought home a 
victory over arch rivals, the Baylor 
Bears, during the season opener. Other 
big wins included a blow-out victory of 
17-3 over Louisiana State University. 
The game against Louisiana marked the 
highest score during one game for the 
Bucs. Another first for the Bucs was a 
12-7 win over the Texas A&M Aggies. 
Other wins for the Bucs included two 
victories over the Houston Lacrosse 

The 1987 season was a season of re- 
cords for the Bucs. Don Earles set a re- 
cord for the most goals scored during 
one game with six goals against the Ag- 
gies. Earles also lead the team in total 

scoring with a total of forty goals. Rob 
Ranee and Dan Boobar set a record for 
most assists in one game with four as- 
sists each. Ranee led the team with 
twelve assists, followed by Boobar with 

The team gained national recognition 
with attack player Wynne Haemisegger. 
Currently she is the only woman playing 
men's lacrosse. It is estimated that over 
three million people have heard of 
Southwestern and the Southwestern La- 
crosse team due to all the publicity she 
received during the past year. 

The annual lacrosse banquet was held 
April 15. Three awards were given to 
three outstanding players. Sophomore 
Don Earles was named most valuable 
player for his forty goals. Senior Dan 
Boobar was named most improved play- 
er and freshman Reid Morrison was 
named Rookie of the Year. The captains 
also awarded some special awards to 

some special team members. Senior 
Russell Klawunn was awarded the 
"hatchet award" for his devotion to the 
penalty box. Sophomore Rob Ranee was 
given the hot dog award for his spectac- 
ular dancing on the field. 

The end of the 1987 season marks the 
end of an era for the Bucs. Five of the 
seven remaining charter members of 
the team will be graduating. These five 
are Treg Taylor, Russell Klawunn, Jon 
Rice, Dan Boobar and Travis Mathis. 
These five along with charter members 
Monty Curtis and Matt Norris were with 
the team when the Bucs didn't score 
half the goals Don Earles scored during 
one season. They played during the year 
when the team was so small that substi- 
tutes were something the other teams 
had. They leave the team having beaten 
four important teams: Baylor, Rice, Tex- 
as A&M, and Louisiana State, by Beverly

Lady Bucs Battle Out Season 

The women lost their last two games 
to finish the season 12-15. The last 
home game was against Texas Wesley-

maintained throughout the game. But 
they cooled down and Texas Wesleyan 

jumped out in front near the end of the 
game. The Bucs rallied back but fell 
short, 74-71. Leading scorers for the 
game were Kathleen Patrick, Stephanie 
Baker, and Carolyn Guyton. 

The Bucs took their last game to U.T.

75-62 but every player had at least tw> 
points and 1 rebound. The game wa

Team Won First Trophy In 41 Years 

The Southwestern men's and wom- 
en's tennis teams completed their sea- 
son with a second place finish in the 
NAIA District 4 Independent Tennis 

Coach Mike Fabritius was pleased with 
the results of the tournament and the 
season as a whole. The men's team 

compiled a 6-5 record, while the women 
were 7-4 for the spring season. 

In the tournament three Southwest- 
ern players reached the finals. Andrew 
James lost a close match in the finals to 
Schreiners number one singles player. 

Liza Brethouwer also lost in the wom- 
en's singles finals. Liza then teamed up 

with Kim Haney in the doubles finals and 
came away just short of the victory. 

Coach Fabritius said, "The season was 
a great one. Anytime the kids compile a 
winning record against scholarship 
teams, they have to feel good about the 
job they have done."

Art Association

The Art Association is an organization 
to promote interest in the visual arts 
and to provide artistic growth for stu- 
dents of the arts. In the 86-87 year, the 
Art Association succeeded in almost 
doubling its membership from the pre- 
vious year. Sponsored events included 
two museum trips, one to Fort Worth to 

see the Kimball, Amon Carter, and Fort 
Worth Museums of Fine Arts, and one to 
the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. The 
trip to Houston was coupled with an ar- 
chitectural tour of Houston given by Dr. 
Howe. Other events were a film series 
on artists and a reception for the stu- 
dent art show at the end of the year.

The 1986-1987 edition of the Mega- 
phone will go down in history as Volume 
81. The editor-in-chief was Joey Gimenez. 
His able-bodied assistants were; Joe Ev- 
ans, sports; Stephanie Gimenez, arts and 
entertainment; Aimee O'Malley, fiction 
and reporting; Katie Parvin, on-campus 
activities; and Teri Parvin, sports. The 
staff reporter was Kenny Simon. Typeset- 
ting was diligently labored over by Heidi 
Lewis, Laura Byrd, and Lara Stewart. Jill 
Boone helped the Assistant Editors com- 
plete the lay-out each Wednesday night. 
Heidi Lewis managed the advertising. 
Sean Williams, Chuck Flagg, Joe Weeden, 
and Shelly Boykin contributed their pho- 
tography skills. The art contributions 
came from Stephanie Gimenez, Wes Wil- 
laert (creator of the Whip cartoon), and 
Chris Douglas. 

The form and content progressed 
steadily over the year. Because SU does 
not have a journalism department per se 
the Editor and his assistants relied heavily 
on the ideas and assistance of the head of 
the Student Publication Board, Ben Sher- 
man, and University Relations writer, Jill 
Mayfield. With their aid the Megaphone 
steadily refined a professional look and 
increased the Megaphone's popularity. 

The best thing which occured over the 
course of the year was the increasing in- 
volvement of the students with the news- 
paper. Their contributions made the 
Megaphone a very well rounded and cam- 
pus-oriented publication. Hopefully the 
future will produce such similar interest in 
the communication outlet provided by 
the Megaphone.

University Sing, put in strong perfor- 
mances for intramurals, and had several 
members involved in theatre. 

This year, our chapter celebrated its 
seventy-fifth anniversary. We held an 
Alumnae Barbecue in San Gabriel Park. 
We had the opportunity to meet many Tri 
Deltas, sing songs, and ate great food. 
That night, March 28, 1987, we had a

Angers is located in the Loire Valley in 
France. It is a charming city catering to 
tourists without being "touristique". The 
Angevins fondly have named Universite 
Catholique de I' Quest of Angers as the 
Cato. What most people don't realize is 
that thanks to years of work by former 
professor Dr. Regine Reynolds-Cornell, 
Southwestern has a sister relationship 
with the Cato whereby any student with 
department approval may study there 
with automatic transfer of credit. 

One group from Southwestern included 
Andrea Burleson, Jill Carpenter, Ridge 
Dacy, Jay Huddleston, Elizabeth Rath- 
burn, Karyn Sahl, Rick Whittacker and 
Buffie Evans. 

Our class days were long and tiring. 
There was not a lot of work outside of 
class but the work in class I found pretty 
demanding. There were students from 
something like forty countries in the in- 
ternational program at the Cato. I loved 
meeting all those people and learned 
quite a lot about other cultures from my 
conversation and oral expression classes 
with them, by Buffie Evans

The problem with recapping the 
months in London is that it was more 
than just a vacation, or an isolated exper- 
ience, it was real life. All of the problems 
of everyday existence were still present, 
as well as the good times, but it was all in 
a new context with new surroundings. 
That is precisely what made the semester 
abroad such a valuable experience. 

One of the everyday occurrences that 
was an integral part of London life was the 
subway system called the Underground 
or tube. The tubes were a necessity for 
getting around, but at the same time pro- 
vided a good opportunity to see the diver- 
sity of the London population. 

When not using the underground sys- 
tem, simply taking a walk was an incredi- 
bly enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. 
The special thing about walking in London 
is that no matter where you go, you can 
always find some obscure historical spot 
or famous person's home. There is just so 
much history behind the city that it never 
ceases to provide some new aspect to a 
place that may have been visited many 
times before. 

I had many wonderful experiences 
there, as well as abroad, and there is not 
a single reply to explain the months spent 
there. I think this program is an invaluable 
asset to a Southwestern education. I 
guess it will have to suffice to say that it 
was an experience in life, and one that I 
will remember, and treasure, forever, by 
Leslie Williamson

Delta Pi 

On February 7, 1907 Zeta Chapter of 
Alpha Delta Pi was founded on the South- 
western University campus. Eighty years 
later this strong sisterhood continues its 
long standing traditions. 

Under the leadership of Karen 
Schroeder as president, the ADPi's par- 
ticipated in various events throughout the 
1986-87 school year. They performed in 
Sing as guys and girls and showed up as 
pumpkins for the Homecoming Parade. 
Later in October the annual Alpha Delta Pi 
Play Day took place. Proceeds went to 
their national philantrophy, the Ronald 
McDonald House. 

Rush proved to be very successful for 
Alpha Delta Pi, bringing in twenty-one 
women to strengthen the life of this sis- 
terhood. Perhaps the most exciting event 
the ADPi's participated in was their 80th 
Birthday party on February 7, 1987. They 
were honored to welcome back daugh- 
ters of their Charter members and many 
other familiar faces. 

Another honor the ADPi's enjoyed was 
receiving the highest scholarship among 
sororities for the fall semester with an 
overall GPA of 3.22. 

March was the month for the Alpha Del- 
ta Pi State Convention and Zeta chapter 
brought home many awards to add to 
their previous ones. 

There were many other activities in 
which the ADPi's could be found partici- 
pating in throughout the busy school 
year. Zeta chapter looks forward to an- 
other eighty years of a strong and suc- 
cessful sisterhood.

Members of the Yearbook Staff worked 
this past year to create a quality year- 
book. Members attended workshops 
where they designed pages, typed arti-

Staff members included Tonia Cook, 
Brooke Burris, Jill Boone, Alison Green, 
Katie Parvin, Holly Marshall, Michelle 
Glick, Tracy Phillips, and Heidi Lewis. The 
1987 Sou'wester photographers were 
Joe Weedon and Chuck Flagg. These pho- 
tographers undertook taking portrait pic- 
tures of SU students, the organization 
group shots, photos of the campus, and 
many of the other candids which appear

And Wig 

As the year draws to a close it seems 
one can look back and find that in 1986- 
1987 we have seen a lot more of Mask 
and Wig than in years past. Few may real- 
ize that Mask and Wig is one of the oldest 
organizations established here at South- 
western. The group membership accepts 
both theatre and non-theatre students, 
however it does require participation in at 
least two shows. Performing in Home- 
coming's Sing started off the year with 
songs from A Chours Line, Grease, Little 
Shop of Horrors, and La Cage Aux Folles. 
This year's performances were The Mer- 
chant of Venice with guest artist David 
Fox Brenton; Hayfever, John Oertling's 
last show to direct here at S. U.; the musi- 
cal How to Succeed in Business Without 
Really Trying; and the traditional Experi- 
ments in Theatre. Activities such as skat- 
ing, bowling, rolling and attending shows 
filled our year, creating both the best and 
the worst of times which is typical in the 
life of the theatre.

in its second year at Southwestern, high- 
lighting the year with a rockclimbing trip 
to the Enchanted Rock State Natural 
Area in April. PEARL also provided service 
to the campus and community by provid-

Bicycle Race, judges for several local ju- 
nior high school track meets, served as 
concession workers at the state Cross 
Country meets and selected Southwest-

Texas Gamma Chapter has been at 
Southwestern since 1886. 

This year the Phi Delts welcomed thir- 
teen new diversified brothers. Through 
dedication and hard work, the brothers of 
Phi Delta Theta have built a lasting frater- 
nity worthy of many distinguished nation- 
al awards. However, in spite of our nation- 
al acclaim, our greatest assets are our 
fraternal bonds and our brotherhood.

It was a record breaking year for the 
National Alumni Phonathon this year. 

The phonathon raised over 101,000 
dollars, more money than any previous 
year. The Brown Foundation of Houston 
sets up the Brown Challenge which 
matches gifts $1:$1 for the Phonathon. 
The top six callers this year were Kate 
Butler, Matt Dean, Laura Degenhart, Mi- 
chelle Glick, Judy Lukert, Tom Oliver, and 
Steve Sergiovanni. Chaperone Dan Yoxall 
took the six top callers on a cruise to 
Nassau, Bahamas. The trip was filled with 
fun, excitement and many unforgettable 
moments. Overall, the Phonathon was a 
tremendous success along with a most 
memorable cruise experience, by Steve

One of the things I just loved about be- 
ing an R.A. were the 4:00 a. m. lockout 
calls from partied-out people. Just a small 
part of our 24 hour job was then finding 
out that their keys were in their pockets. 

But most people think we're on duty 
only a few times a week to lock the doors 
at night and kick the guys out after mid- 

For us, though, the realities of being an 
R. A. are more serious and entailing. 
Problems that we helped others encoun- 
ter included rape, pregnancy, suicide, de- 
pression, and other trials of college stu- 
dents. Being an R. A. helped me develop 
quick decision abilities and reference 
skills for aiding others in solving the di- 

We did not try to be police officers. The 
rules we enforced were courtesy or safety 
related and depended on resident co-op- 
eration. One of the worthwhile elements 
of being an R.A. was the trust and friend- 
ship that developed out of a small amount 
of caring and help. 

The difficulty of Time Management was 
a major factor in being an R.A. We are 
students, we play intramurals, have extra- 
curricular activities and meetings. On top 
of this, though, we were always available 
for our residents to use us for advice and 
for problems that needed outside help in 
solving, by Natalie Marshall

The rights of the animals have been a 
controversy for hundreds of years. 
Slowly people began realizing that men 
like Descartes, who said animals feel no 
emotions at all, were wrong and the 
push for better animal welfare began. 
The 1900's have seen great advances 
and setbacks in the animal welfare is- 
sues. However, the animal rights move-

ment has gained considerable momen- 
tum in the past five years. 

Animal rights issues range from a local 
campaign to have dogs and cats spayed 
and neutered to ending the baby seal 

Southwestern's Animal Rights Advo- 
cates sponsored programs and disscus- 
sions on contemporary animal rights is- 

sues. We helped educate the campus 
community on responsible pet owner- 
ship and helped the Williamson County 
Humane Society. We had films and 
speakers. Before this year, there was 
not an animal welfare organization on 
campus and several students expressed 
a need for one. 



The Panhellenic Council, composed of 
two representatives from each of the 
four national sororities on campus was 
originally created as an advisory and 
governing organization to promote in- 
ter-Greek relations. The Council be- 
longed to the National Panhellenic Con- 
ference and abided by National rules re- 
garding rush and inter-sorority relations. 
The Panhellenic Council at Southwest- 

ern encouraged growth and develop- 
ment of individuals and sororities and 
worked to create a strong unified Pan- 
hellenic spirit. 

The Council promoted a "Go Greek" 
campaign, worked on Greek Week, spon- 
sored a scholarship reception recogniz- 
ing members in all eight Greek social 
organizations on campus who had a GPA 
of 3.5 or better, and provided a pledge 

picnic for the Spring pledges of all eight 
Greek social organizations, as well as 
regulating Rush throughout the year. 
The eight member council was stronger 
and closer this year than ever before 
and was proud of all that Panhellenic 
had accomplished. 


XYZ is a fairly new organization that 
jwas established in the Spring of 1985. 

XYZ stands for Xtra Years of Zest which 
lis similiar to adopt a grandparent. XYZ 

provides interaction between college 

students and older adults at the Wesley- 
an Retirement Home. The organization 
has several mixers a year with the resi- 
dents at the retirement home along with 
providing an errand service once a 

week. The older adults enjoy the fellow- 
ship and the members of XYZ are able to 
increase their knolwedge through work- 
ing with residents.

The sisters of Zeta Tau Alpha have 
worked to uphold our strong links to tradi- 
tions in modern times. The national fra- 
ternity, founded in 1898 at Longwood 
College in Farmville, Virginia, has grown 
to the third largest greek organization in 
the nation. Lambda chapter, established 
at Southwestern in 1906, has remained 
active both on campus and in our national 

Last summer we received the Member- 
ship Selection Award for Excellence at our 
International Convention. We also placed 
second in "University Sing" with our 
"Cats" presentation. We came in first 
place in ADPi playday, and have been 
competitive in intramural sports. For the 
first time this year we began a traditional 
Iron-a-thon to raise money for our nation- 
al philanthropy, the National Association 
for Retarded Citizens. By ironing over 
seven hundred shirts, we raised approxi- 
mately $370. 

Yet, more important than any award of 
recognition we have received, is the spe- 
cial bond between ZTA sisters. Although 
we are diversified in personality and ac- 
tivities, we compliment one another un- 
der our common respect and love for one 
another. Within our organization we have 
representatives of lacrosse, basketball, 
music, international studies, honor soci- 
eties, fraternity little sisters, every major, 
and members of other governing bodies 
on campus. We have members in every 
facet of university life. The sisterhood 
within ZTA provides a strong foundation 
from which a member can develop and 
explore the various aspects of college life; 
making the experience one that is com- 
plete and fulfilling.

Program Council 

The Union Program Council provided a 
vareity of activities for the campus. UPC 
consisted of committees for music 
events, special events, recreation, travel, 
student activities, films, cultural events, 
and a radio committee. These commit- 
tees provided concerts, dances, lectures, 
films, and outings for the university popu- 
lation, usually at no charge to the stu- 
dents. Some of these activities included 
juggler/comedian, Edward Jackman; the 
musical group, Regency; an all-campus 
Christmas Ball (preceded by ballroom 
dancing lessons); an inter-collegiate 
dance with St. Edwards University; and a 
student talent show; among others. 

Involvement in UPC existed at three 
levels; students could simply be audi- 
ences/participants, they could be com- 
mittee members, or they could apply for 
a position as committee chairperson. In- 
volvement in UPC provided students with 
an opportunity for expansion of cultural 
tastes, growth and responsibility, and the 
ability to learn new skills and discover 
new talents.

The Student Coalition For a An Orga- 
nized Peace Effort (S.C.O.P.E.) was 
formed in the Fall semester of 1985 by 
several Southwestern students whose 
concern over the nuclear arms race and 
escalating U.S. intervention in Central 
America compelled them to come togeth- 
er and work for world peace. S.C.O.P.E. 
works to accomplish its goals by educat- 
ing the campus community on peace is- 
sues and participating in various forms of 
political action, such as writing to legisla- 
tors, circulating petitions, and becoming 
involved in anti-war demonstrations. 
S.C.O.P.E. is a chapter of the National 
Organization United Campuses to Pre- 
vent Nuclear War.
